I feel Disrespected, Overlooked, and Passed Over.

I am not engaged. I just put in the bare minimum.

You may not have heard these terms said at work, but some of your employees are feeling them. You notice gaining buy-in is becoming harder. Gossip has found a comfortable place. Manipulation and passive aggressive behavior have long overstayed their welcome, and you may have one, or two high performing producers contributing to this toxic environment.

You see this and wonder what you can do to help everyone can get the most out of their day at work.

Research shows that people with high emotional intelligence produce more in sales, have good interpersonal relationships, work well in teams and make great hires. In fact, hiring managers focus more on Emotional Intelligence rather than IQ when they are looking to promote employees.

Bill Affeldt, PMP

The PMI event was graced with a wonderful speaker, Monique who presented on Navigating the Workplace Successfully through Leadership and Communication. Since 60 - 70% of a Project/Program Manager's responsibilities include communication, it is imperative that clear, concise information is transmitted and that the right message is heard and understood.

  • How is this course different from other courses?

    This course is for the practical leader and team. Many emotional intelligence courses are designed for those seeking an academic credential and focus heavy on theoretical research, or are focused on the neuroscience, which is really fascinating. This course; however, is not too technical, and not too theoretical. It’s just right. You won’t be exploring terms like the verbal cortex, amygdala, optimal cognitive functioning, ganglio or other medical terminology, I promise. You will be guided with activities and reflections you can implement in every day practice.
